The Invention of Santa Claus


I agree! When I even try to mention that Christmas (and many christian holidays) are based on or specifically around similar pagan ones or are derived from them entirely (May Day and Halloween) people tend to gasp. The next thing I ask them to do is to think about whether they ever set a date in the bible for the birth of Jesus. The lambs were lambing and the shepherds were tending them, so.... ummm that is spring if I am not mistaken... Not specifically the 25th of December.



Holidays have become so commercialized these days that people forget where our traditions come from. Heck, didn't the Puritans try to ban Christmas back in Europe before they were sent here?



So I say Happy Yule to all and Merry Christmas, and Happy Chaunukah... Or to sum it all up for everyone Happy Holidays!

Annise Parker: Openly Gay Mayor Elected In Houston, Texas


The most important thing to consider in this amazing moment is that the most qualified individual was elected. As it seems, people (even in Texas) have found a way to look past gender and sexuality and elect someone because she is the right person for the job.


On the GLBT front, this is a remarkable stepping stone and one which is paving the way for those that are struggling with their own sexuality. RIGHT ON Mayor Parker!

Richard Cohen: Gay-To-Straight 'Therapist' Spars With Rachel Maddow (VIDEO)


I believe that there is a massive plague scourging our earth... especially the U.S. It is the plague of ignorance. It is the illness of believing everything you hear and regurgitating it as fact. It is the sick practice of judging people based upon the words of NOT JESUS, but of his MALE followers. It is the mental depression of a country that was first drawn out of its proverbial cave and now is sadly being drawn back into that cave and forgetting the wonders they once knew.



Some of us are still on the outside... and challenge you to step into the light!

Richard Cohen: Gay-To-Straight 'Therapist' Spars With Rachel Maddow (VIDEO)


Yes it is a choice... well for him being Straight is a choice and I have a choice as well. I can chose to be straight and unhappy and go against everything that I feel, OR I can just be who I am naturally (which is not a choice). Going against your attractions is a choice. However, you do not CHOOSE who you are attracted to.



Way to go Rachel! I love how she can totally debunk the guy and sting him with his own words... All with a smile and a "Thank you and I hope you appreciate the publicity I just gave your unfounded non-scientific false information and Treated you fairly by doing so... DUDE!!!"

Quitting FB Apps: A Turkey Sandwich Best Served Cold


So, I realized at one point as I was clicking away at mindless squares on a green field and worrying about taking my peking duck off the stove, I AM STRESSED OUT! I mean, Facebook has the market cornered on these mini-apps that hook you into hours of dribble with no real connection to anyone who is your "neighbor".

I had three different farms, a cafe, did quests and wars on Age of Castles, and denied I don't know how many attempts for me to join a mob/gang/coven in Mafia Wars or Vampire Wars. As tempting as it sounded, I didn't want to be a pirate on the high seas in Pirates (thingamajigy app name goes here). See, I can't even REMEMBER all the zaney apps that would pop up in my requests.

Anyway, I decided to start a group, Quitting FB Apps: A Turkey Sandwich Best Served Cold. I named it that because I had decided to deal my dose of revenge (a dish best served cold) by quitting Cold Turkey. Either way, I really don't forsee hurting any of these apps by doing this, but I do see them not getting my business anymore.

When my girlfriend was actually pulling her hair out worrying about her food going bad in Cafe World, I knew it was time to send her a request to my group as well. Now, I didn't expect her to quit everything but WOW She DID! I am so proud of her! Anyone who joins the group does not have to quit anything, but just know that you can do it if you want to... if you want to take your LIFE back that is. I already have an addiction to Second Life and didn't need mindless apps added to that.

I created the logo a few days ago in my Photoshop CS4. I hope that you check it out and maybe join. Tell us your stories about quitting or wanting to quit. Either way, we have a forum now :).
